Payroll Journal Entries

Hi

I'm dong my year end accounts but when I run my trial balance and P&L accounts my salary payments are double counted. They are being picked up from the journal entries made when the payroll is run then again when they are paid from the business bank account. 

 

Can i delete the journal entries or will this effect my other salary accounts such as pension and NI liabilities? 

Thanks

Payroll Journal Entries

 Not to worry, @Natalie46. I can help you remove double-counted salary payments.

 

In your case, yes, you can delete the duplicate journal entry so it won't double your payroll expenses. This won't affect other salary accounts since this shows as duplicate. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to Settings ⚙️.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Look for the appropriate account for the transaction.
  4. From the Action column, click Account history.
  5. Select the journal entry and choose Delete.
  6. Choose Yes to confirm that you want to delete the transaction.

 

For more details, check our reverse or delete a journal entry.

 

You now have the correct journal entry on your account. If you have additional questions, feel free to comment anytime. I'm always here to lend a hand. Stay safe.
